Trade in the brown bag for a sack of surprises! Mom wears many hats, but her hairnet belongs to the lunch lady. Whether a mother is packing her kiddo's midday meal or handing him money to purchase it, there are ways to make the nourishment more entertaining! Try transforming the task into one slightly more fabulous with these fun items!
It's like cute overload over here with this Lunch Lady news. Amy Poehler is attached to star in a film adaptation of a children's graphic novel series, Lunch Lady. The books focus on "a mild-mannered school cafeteria server who secretly dishes out helpings of justice as she and her assistant investigate wrongdoings. The books also feature three kids who try to figure out her double life."
Adorable. Who's better for this kind of thing? Kristen Chenoweth is great with fun kids' stuff, but I like that, for this particular role, it maybe calls for someone a little scrappier and Amy Poehler is a perfect choice. I'm not even the target audience for this and I don't have any kids, but I'm excited to see it because Poehler never fails to entertain.
There is a revolution a foot. Children all over the world are demanding fresh veggies in the lunchrooms of their schools! OK, maybe all over the world is an exaggeration. But the students at a Las Vegas elementary school convinced the lunch lady running their cafeteria to serve a wider variety of fresh veggies. Students used a polite letter writing campaign as their political tactic. Sick of repeatedly being served reheated, frozen green beens one child wrote, "Anything, anything, I’ll even eat broccoli." That is music to my ears!
The lunch lady agrees with me and will be "tweaking" the menu in the fall. Hopefully this is one happening that won't just stay in Vegas!
